America’s sportsmen and women are extremely fortunate. In the U.S. we have some of the greatest wildlife of any nation and the most successful wildlife conservation funding model in the world. We are really fortunate to have the dedicated organizations that care about protecting our hunting heritage for the next generations of outdoorsmen and women.
These hunter-conservationist organizations again are working to advance federal legislation which will require the nearly 500 million acres managed by the U.S. Forest Service and the Bureau of Land Management to have open access for hunting, angling, trapping, and recreational target shooting. The 20 biggest hunting organizations in the U.S. support H.R. 1825, the Recreational Fishing and Hunting Heritage and Opportunities Act.
This list includes: Archery Trade Association, Association of Fish and Wildlife Agencies, Boone & Crockett Club, Bowhunting Preservation Alliance, Catch-a-Dream Foundation, Congressional Sportsmen’s Foundation, Conservation Force, Dallas Safari Club, Delta Waterfowl Foundation, Ducks Unlimited, National Rifle Association, National Shooting Sports Foundation, National Trappers Association, National Wild Turkey Federation, North American Bear Foundation, Pope & Young Club, Quality Deer Management Association, Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation, Ruffed Grouse Society, Safari Club International, U.S. Sportsmen’s Alliance, Wild Sheep Foundation, & Wildlife Forever.
